Nothing can stop the Empire! In the immediate aftermath of the first Death Star’s destruction, a new Imperial special forces team is formed to deal with the growing threat of well-informed rebel cells. And these aren’t just any run-of-the-mill rebels – these terrorists are the direct successors to the extremist Saw Gerrera! Read on to get some insight on the exciting Battlefront II novel from Christie Golden. Continue reading “Definite Article: Inferno Squad Review”
Happy Star Wars day everyone! Enjoy binging the movies, buying collectibles, or avenging our Emperor! Whatever it is you do, may the Force of others be with you.
I’ve been a little busy planning a wedding and I’m getting over a nasty head cold. Now that I’m better, what better way to celebrate with a new Stormtrooper! This Target exclusive is part of the Rogue One set of figures, though I don’t actually remember ever seeing this trooper in the film. Speaking of the film, the home DVD/blu ray release is this Tuesday, April 4th. So there’s no time like the present to revisit Rogue One’s new Imperial trooper variants!
Tying the end of the Clone Wars into the Galactic Civil War era, Scarif Stormtroopers aka Shore Troopers feature Imperial-style armor with Clone-esque customizations. Rogue One gave us a great story and some new Stormtrooper variants to stand alongside the mighty ranks of the Empire. Continue reading “Black Series: The Scarif Stormtroopers”
Time for some more Black Series to start the year! This currently semi-rare figure was a Christmas gift from my loving fiance, and it’s easily one of my favorite recent figures. The new body mold gives me hope that some more Imperial officers (and their weird space riding pants) will join Hasbro’s figure line.
I had a bad feeling about today but I had no idea it would turn out like this. When I heard the news that Carrie Fisher had passed (after hearing it through some miscommunication I should say – the details seemed muddy, and the last I heard, she was recovering) I almost couldn’t believe it. 2016 hasn’t been kind in regards to the passing of prolific people, but it’s important to remember that the people who leave us live on through their actions in life, and in our fond memories.
If I could review Rogue One in one sentence it’d be exactly what I leaned over and whispered to my fiance in the theater right around 15-20 minute mark of this film; “I need to ask them to pause so I can pick up my jaw.” Sure, it has some flaws and nitpicks, but the film is that good. Go see it. If you haven’t, don’t bother reading this. Google a showtime and go. You’ll thank me later (and probably LucasFilm to a greater extent, but whatever)
